A week later, I'd probably rank it at the bottom as well. Pretty crazy how boring it is in relation to the sci-fi ridiculousness. 

 

9 better take it back to the tuna.

HOBBES AN SHAW

I count F1 as an alternative universe spin off at this point.

4 is probably my bottom and Hobbs and Shaw would probably be ahead of it. If Hobbs and Shaw is way too jokey, then Fast and Furious is generally too dour and serious because of whole Dom out for vengeance thing.

 

Honestly tho, I haven't really enjoyed a Fast and Furious film wholeheartedly since 6. Take us back to the promised land, J Lin

We’re at the ninth entry of the Furious series so… first thing’s first: you better leave your brain at the door. If you’re not a fan of this franchise at all for whatever reason, this is not for you. It carries the same exact spirit and themes as the main entries. If you weren’t on board by Fast Five or even Fast and Furious 6, then I don’t know what to tell ya. From the disposable nonsensical narratives to creating their own laws of physics, you can’t help but criticize a Fast and the Furious movie. But... it’s Fast and Furious. They’ve gotten away with those flaws for so long that they’ve become identifiers for the franchise. They’re essential charms for all of their movies, including H&S, making for some of the most memorable action scenes in film history, no matter how ridiculous they are.

89% Aud RT after 17k verified reviews is pretty damn high.

F8 is at 72% after 44k (non verified).

F7 at 82% after 195k (non verified).

Not surprised in the least. The film was over the top, but over the top fun!

The Tango & Cash comparison is apt.

Story lines & tones are pretty close.

330m WW after 2nd weekend. Can’t see this crossing 500m. Certainly not breaking even if the budget is 200m as reported.

China is still to come

I have to wonder why their PR people think it's a good idea to have their egos working OT on twitter. Dwayne could have just ignored it but no he's just as bad.

so it's a "little spin-off" with prod budget of puny 200m. 💪

i think the idea to go for H&S was timely and kept the franchise alive.

something went a little off in the marketing. should be doing bigger numbers at least early on.
